"I just wanted to send you a note to let you know how much I enjoyed working with you on the local marketing programs. I really appreciate the work you did for us. The Southwest Region experienced greater promotional sales and less promotional cost per unit sold than the remainder of the US for the last two years in a row. I attribute these results to the great job you did in securing and managing special promotional programs in the Southwest Region using the local marketing approach."  Marvin Banks: Dow Brands Southwestern Regional Manager
